      I have the same problem using version 7.x
      No problem in version 6.2 with the same code.

      Also tried to print via Windows command line - still not possible...
      c:\>foxitreader.exe /t test.pdf printername

      It prints it - but not silent.

        Yes, it will launch Foxit Reader program when silent print file using V7.0.x, and this issue has been reported to our Dev team for future fix, report id:61204

          Hi.
          Is it possible to say when the silent print feature will be fixed? I tried FoxitReader 7.1.5 and situation is still the same.
          Thanks for answer.

            Dear Lukas, We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience.As of right now ,we can't estimate the arrival time about when our developers will fix out this issue. As a temporary workaround, if you don't want Foxit Reader program opened, we suggest you roll back to V6. Following is the link for downloading Foxit Reader 6.2:
            http://cdn01.foxitsoftware.com/pub/f..._enu_Setup.exe

            We will also keep you all informed by replying in this thread once this issue is rectified or you may also write a letter to us with this report ID#61204 to track its processing status.

                    amein ,

                    Regarding the situation"the output from printing will be out of margin",it may be related to the"Print as image"in Foxit Reader print dialog box.
                    So please try to open any PDF file in Foxit Reader and click "File">"Print"to open print dialog box,please uncheck option"print as image"and then click "OK"to print the PDF file(Note:you have to print the opened PDF file one time manually to make our Foxit Reader to save the "print as image"this printing setting).And then try to print using the bat file again to see whether the printout will be out of margin or not.

                    If the printout is out of margin after doing the above steps,please help to check option"print as image"in print dialog box to see if it will make any difference?

                      Hi, I use Version 7.3.6.321, WindowsServer 2012.

                      Silent print is called from a jar-process running on local system (called from a batch). It works 1x because the foxit reader task will not be finished, before the next call I have to kill it manually from the taskmanager. Any idea ?

                        Please try the following to kill the process and see if it helps:

                        taskkill /f /im foxitreader.exe

                        Thank you.
